GRAY/GREY, Peter Forbes (April 1933-September 2005)
After a brief, stoic battle with cancer, Peter leaves his wife of 46 years, Muriel May (née BEAUFIELD;) his son John Charles GRAY/GREY (San Diego;) daughter Susan M. GRAY/GREY (Halifax;) and brother John H. GRAY/GREY (La Châtre, France;) predeceased by his sister Mary Louise ROSE. Born in Windsor, Ontario, son of the late Mary A. GRAY/GREY (née HAWKEY) and John Campbell GRAY/GREY. Following his graduation from Nepean High School in Ottawa, Ontario, Peter embarked on several expeditions to the Canadian Arctic as a steward aboard the icebreaker D'Iberville. He gained a life-long appreciation and admiration of the North, its natives and their art. Peter graduated from Carleton University in Ottawa with a Bachelor of Science, Geology in 1957 and began work that summer with McNamara Construction, first in Belleville, Ontario, and soon after in Witless Bay, Newfoundland. It was there he had the good fortune of meeting his soon-to-be wife Muriel, who was working as a nurse in Saint John's. When they married in 1959, the United Church Minister insisted on knowing where Peter was from 'in Newfoundland' Windsor, Ontario was not acceptable and their marriage certificate states that Peter is from Witless Bay. Peter's experiences with roadbuilding and heavy equipment led him to join the Caterpillar Company first in Toronto in 1960 and later in Halifax in 1972 with Nova Scotia Tractor and Equipment. As General Sales Manager and later Vice-President Corporate Development, Peter was regarded as an excellent salesman and an inspiring manager. On a wine tasting trip to France in 1983, Peter was named a 'Hospitalier d'Honneur' by the Hospitaliers de Pomeral; it was a moment he truly prized. With retirement in July 1998, Peter's life was filled with the joy of a first grandchild (and 'best pal',) Oliver Peter DICKSON/DIXON and in 2001 Gunnar Eric GRAY/GREY. He also began the seven year commitment to the care of his ailing spouse. He was a fine man, full of love and generosity and we will miss him forever. Donations in Peter's name may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Visitation: Tuesday, October 4, 2005 from 6: 00-9:00 p.m. at J.A. Snow Funeral Home, 2666 Windsor Street, Halifax, Nova Scotia B3K 5C9.

Phyllis GRETZKY, Hockey Mom (1941-2005)
As the mother of a superstar, she deserved full credit as the one who did all the driving, tended the skates and got everyone to the rink on time, writes Sandra MARTIN. 'She's always been the toughest in the family'
By Sandra MARTIN, With files from Canadian Press, Wednesday, December 21, 2005, Page S7
Ashy, private woman, Phyllis GRETZKY preferred to let her husband, Walter, share in the limelight that surrounded their son, hockey legend Wayne GRETZKY. Both parents drove their kids to hockey practice, watched them play and encouraged them, but Mrs. GRETZKY preferred to live quietly in the home that she and her husband bought more than 40 years ago in Brantford, Ontario
"The truth is, Phyllis deserves just as much credit as me," Walter GRETZKY said about his wife in the early 1980s. "Hockey has been a full-time job for her since Wayne was 5. She was the one who's done all the driving, picked up sticks, got skates sharpened, juggled schedules and everything else while I went to work every day."
She consented to chat with a journalist in a Brantford arena in 1982. She was wearing blue jeans and a parka, smoking a cigarette and holding a cup of coffee to keep warm. "I think we are just a normal family.... We haven't really changed," she said, referring to her eldest son's career in the National Hockey League. "It's nice that he made it after all the talk that he was too small, too slow, and everything else. He's really shown people he can do it."
Her son respected her in return. "Throughout my career, she was in the background but she was the glue," he said when Mrs. GRETZKY was diagnosed with lung cancer last year. "She's always been the toughest in the family."
Both Mrs. GRETZKY and her husband were heavy smokers. He has attributed the nearly fatal stroke he suffered in 1991 at least partially to his addiction to nicotine.
All her children came home on the weekend after Mrs. GRETZKY's condition worsened. She was admitted to hospital last Thursday suffering from pneumonia.
"This has definitely been hard on everybody," her son Glen GRETZKY told the Brantford Expositor after his mother died on Monday night. "It's been a long 10 months and this is a very sad day."
Phyllis HAWKIN was born and raised in Paris, Ontario, but her parents, whose heritage was British, came from Queenston Heights and can claim Sir Isaac BROCK, a hero of the war of 1812, as an ancestor. A popular, attractive and strong-willed girl who loved to party and was known to sneak out of her parents' house after they had gone to bed, she met Walter GRETZKY at a wiener roast at his family farm near Brantford when she was 15 and he was 18. She was with another boy, but "I didn't let that stop me," Mr. GRETZKY wrote in his autobiography, Walter GRETZKY: On Family, Hockey and Healing.
They dated at the Calico Kitchen, a drive-in where you ordered food -- including foot-long hot dogs -- through a speaker, then ate it in the car. Phyllis, who was a good athlete and loved playing softball, watched Walter play hockey for the Woodstock Warriors Junior B team.
They married in 1960 in the Anglican church in Paris, and moved into a rented apartment in Brantford and then into a house with a large flat backyard, specially chosen for its potential as a homemade hockey rink. Mrs. GRETZKY's future as a hockey mom was set when Wayne, the first of her five children, was born on January 26, 1961. He was less than a year old when Mrs. GRETZKY's other great asset -- her stoicism -- came into play.
Walter was working as a lineman for Bell Telephone when a cable snapped, broke his safety helmet, fractured his skull and left him in a coma. Mrs. GRETZKY was told to expect the worst, but he survived. He was off work for 18 months, and remains deaf in his right ear.
By the time Wayne was 2, he was skating on the backyard rink that his father would flood in the middle of the night when the temperature plummeted. At 6, he scored his first goal. According to Walter, she worried about her son skating, practising his moves and shooting a puck around long after dark. What would the neighbours think of a family who would let a 6-year-old skate until 10 at night? The neighbours soon had more than bedtime to think about as Wayne became first a local and then a national sensation, scoring 27 goals at 7, 196 goals at 9 and 378 at 10.
By then, Mrs. GRETZKY was busy with her daughter Kim, who was born in 1963, son Keith (1967) and son Glen (1969), and was pregnant with her youngest son, Brent. If she was a hockey mom, her husband was the ultimate hockey dad. He acknowledged that he once vetoed new curtains for the living room in favour of hockey skates for the boys.
And when she was about to give birth to their youngest child, Walter left her alone while he went to watch Wayne skate in a minor hockey championship, thinking his wife and nature would wait until he got back. Instead, he arrived home to find that his wife was in hospital. According to Mrs. GRETZKY, he walked into her room in the maternity ward and said, "We won, we won!" To which she replied, "It's a boy, Walter."
Life wasn't all hockey rinks and trophies. Glen was born with two club feet and, while both parents worried, it was usually Mrs. GRETZKY who made the many trips to Toronto's Hospital for Sick Kids for the surgery and other treatments.
Wayne left home at 14 to play hockey, but the family remained extremely close. For their 25th wedding anniversary in 1985, Wayne bought his parents a blue Cadillac. He'd tried on several occasions to buy them a new home, but they refused. They were proud of their son, but they didn't want to trade on his celebrity status. They did eventually put an addition on the house with their son's help, and they allowed their daughter-in-law Janet to give them a pool in the same backyard that Walter had flooded every year to make a hockey rink.
After Walter's father died in 1988, Phyllis invited her husband's sister, Ellen, who suffered from Down syndrome, to live with them. "I was so relieved," Walter said later, "when Phyllis agreed to take her in to live with us, and grateful -- it's a lot of hard work to deal with Ellen... you have to be committed to do it day after day, year after year."
A quiet, unassuming woman, Mrs. GRETZKY "looked after the house and the kids," as she once said. "Wally went to work and looked after the finances. I never had to write a cheque until after his stroke."
That stroke, a brain aneurism that burst on October 13, 1991, the day before her 50th birthday, changed their lives drastically. "My mum was really the pillar of strength who pulled everyone through," Wayne GRETZKY said about the years of therapy and rehabilitation.
Phyllis GRETZKY was born in Paris, Ontario, on October 14, 1941. She died in hospital in Brantford, Ontario, on Monday of lung cancer complicated by pneumonia.
She was 64. She is survived by her husband, Walter, five children and 12 grandchildren. The funeral will take place on Thursday morning at 10: 30 at Grace Anglican Church in Brantford.

Two women die in road crashes
The victims, age 28 and 51, were both killed in accidents involving transports.
By Jon WILLING, Special to The Free Press
Drumbo -- Two women were killed yesterday morning in separate crashes involving transport trucks. A 28-year-old London woman died after her car collided head-on with a transport truck on Highway 401 near Drumbo.
The collision occurred about 8: 30 a.m. when the woman's Hyundai Accent crossed the grassy highway median and collided head-on with a truck in the west lanes.
"The truck driver saw her coming and tried to shift over to the shoulder from the (right) lane, but he had no time to avoid the collision," Oxford County Ontario Provincial Police Const. Laurie HAWKINS said.
The woman driving the car was the vehicle's only occupant. Police withheld her name yesterday, pending notification of next of kin.
The 38-year-old Kitchener man driving the transport wasn't injured.
The front of the car became pinned under the front of the truck, which pushed the car about 30 metres before coming to a stop.
Blandford-Blenheim firefighters had to winch the car back from under the truck so they could free the woman.
She was trapped in the car for about 45 minutes.
Oxford County paramedics treated her before she was flown to Hamilton.
She later died from her injuries, police said.
The firefighters did an "amazing job" in freeing her, HAWKINS said.
Westbound traffic on the highway was backed up to the Cambridge area while emergency staff worked at the collision scene, near the Drumbo Road exit.
The highway was closed in both directions. It reopened about 12: 45 p.m.
HAWKINS said at the time of the collision there were light flurries. The road was wet but clear.
Const. Dennis HARWOOD said investigators are probing the cause of the crash.
"We're asking anyone who saw the car prior to the collision to come forward."
witnesses: can contact the Ontario Provincial Police at (519) A three-vehicle crash near Parkhill claimed the life of a Grand Bend woman.
Kathleen GREENE, 51, died at the scene following a crash between two sport utility vehicles and a transport.
A sport utility vehicle travelling east on Nairn Road about 7: 40 a.m. collided with the transport travelling north on Centre Road, Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police said.
The crash forced the transport into the south lane, where it collided with an sport utility vehicle driven by GREENE.
The driver of the sport utility vehicle travelling on Nairn Road was taken to hospital in Strathroy with minor injuries.
Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police said the intersection is controlled by stop signs on Nairn Road.

Couple dead in burned car
Police hunting Edward SCHOTT, thought to have abducted his wife, Sandra, find their bodies.
By April KEMICK and Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporters, Fri., October 28, 2005
Ingersoll -- Two people are dead in a grisly murder/suicide following a massive police search for a couple neighbours here say had a stormy relationship.
Oxford Ontario Provincial Police began looking for Edward SCHOTT, 29, and his wife, Sandra SCHOTT, 32, shortly after 6 a.m. yesterday following what they called a "serious domestic situation."
Eight hours later, two bodies were found inside a badly burned car in a woodlot near Dorchester.
"We were seriously hoping to find the vehicle with two people in it alive," Ontario Provincial Police Const. Laurie HAWKINS said of the search, which included helicopters, cruisers and officers on foot.
"We had dozens of officers working to bring these people home safely. This ended... tragically."
Officers were stationed at the SCHOTTs' Victoria Street home in Ingersoll well into last night -- and it wasn't the first time they'd been there in past weeks, a neighbour said.
Police were at the small, narrow home as recently as three weeks ago to escort Sandra SCHOTT's husband off the property, she said.
"The police were telling him to leave the premises," said the neighbour, who withheld her name. "I haven't seen him around here since (then). I always mentioned to my husband I didn't like the way he talked to his wife."
Neighbours said three small children lived at the home, and three children's voices greeted callers on the answering machine, but police would not confirm whether the couple had any children.
When police were called to the house early yesterday, they believed Sandra SCHOTT had possibly been abducted by Edward SCHOTT.
The man was thought to be driving a grey vehicle. Police, believing a weapon might have been involved, warned the public not to approach the car.
"We knew we were dealing with a serious domestic situation," HAWKINS said after the search ended.
Neighbours said the family had been living at 194 Victoria St. for about the last year. Sandra SCHOTT's relatives, who live on the same quiet suburban street, declined comment last night.
The burned car with the two bodies inside was found by police about 2: 30 p.m. yesterday in a wooded area just off Hunt Road near Dorchester. That road, HAWKINS said, intersects with the SCHOTTs' street in Ingersoll.
Details of the deaths, including the cause, couldn't be determined because of the conditions of the bodies, HAWKINS added. They will be sent to the London Health Sciences Centre for forensic identification.

By Michael GENNINGS, Page 6
John Elsworth BOUDREAU, a deacon at St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church in Stayner, died at Collingwood General and Hospital on Thursday.

As a deacon BOUDREAU served Catholics attending St. Patrick's and St. Noël Chabanel Roman Catholic Church in Wasaga Beach until his retirement almost three years ago.
WHALL said that BOUDREAU spent much of his time visiting shut-ins and people in hospital.
"Your principal role as a deacon is to minister to the disenfranchised," WHALL explained.
Although BOUDREAU lived at Bay Haven Nursing Home in Collingwood before his death, WHALL said for a number of years BOUDREAU called Stayner and Wasaga Beach home.
Funeral services for BOUDREAU are scheduled to take place Friday and Saturday.

Jackie DUGAN, Boxer 1926-2005
Canadian middleweight champion from 1948 to 1951 never gave up his title to a challenger. He 'was a beautiful boxer... he would dance from side to side and box you to death'
By Randy RAY, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, March 28, 2005, Page S6
Ottawa -- Few Friends and acquaintances were surprised when Jackie DUGAN decided boxing was his true calling. Fewer still were taken aback when the handsome lad from Peterborough, Ontario was crowned Canada's best middleweight fighter.
Mr. DUGAN held the Canadian middleweight boxing title from 1948 to 1951 and was later inducted into the Canadian Boxing Hall of Fame.
"Our dad was a boxer and we always had boxing gloves around the house," recalls DUGAN's younger brother Arnie. "He spent plenty of time sparring with me and Jackie in the backyard... he showed us the basics and the fundamentals, then we'd round up kids from the neighbourhood and practise on them." As teenagers, Jackie and Arnie would often punch each other hard to the stomach "to see if we could take it. We'd place a bet and hit each other... we never hurt each other because we could tense up our stomach muscles real hard," says Arnie, who went on to play senior-level lacrosse and now lives in Uclulet, B.C.
For his part, Jackie DUGAN dabbled in several sports but eventually chose boxing. He launched his fighting career in Peterborough, where he began working out at a local boxing club, before moving to Toronto, where there was more opportunity and better training facilities. In 1941, Mr. DUGAN, whose given name was John Edwin, joined the Canadian Armed Forces and, after serving with the Tank Corps, was sent overseas as infantry reinforcement for the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Highlanders. While serving in Europe, he was the Canadian Armed Forces middleweight champ in "His prowess as a boxer soon got around and he was on his way to defeating everyone in his class until he reached the top rung in the Canadian Army Overseas," reported a February 15, 1946 story in the in-house newspaper at Canadian General Electric in Peterborough, where Eddie DUGAN worked as a monotype operator. After the war, he turned pro and soon was nicknamed "Irish Jackie DUGAN." He won the Canadian middleweight title on March 11, 1947 at Port Arthur, Ontario (now Thunder Bay) and never lost a title match.
He fought 105 amateur bouts, losing only 10, and as a professional, lost only two of 46 pro fights, says Don WASSON, a spokesperson for the Peterborough and District Sports Hall of Fame.
"He was a beautiful boxer... he reminded me of Muhammad Ali, the way he would dance from side to side and box you to death," says Maxie MAYES of Toronto, who fought in the featherweight category from 1948 to 1955. "He had a great left hand, great movement and solid boxing knowledge."
As a pro, Jackie usually earned between $50 and $75 per fight. His biggest payday, according to The Examiner, was $500 in 1949 when he was on the undercard of the Tony Zale-Marcel Cerden championship fight in New Jersey. The fight was staged in Roosevelt Field, a large football stadium across the Hudson River from New York City.
In later years, Jackie DUGAN regularly sparred with rock legend Ronnie HAWKINS, a resident of the Peterborough area. "I sparred with him for 10 years," Mr. HAWKINS told the Peterborough Examiner. "You couldn't hit him with a box of rice."
When his boxing career ended in the early 1950s, Mr. DUGAN became involved in several pursuits. He was a bouncer at a Toronto club, he became director of the St. Alban's Boys Club in Toronto, he drove a bus in Toronto and, in his later years, he purchased a small acreage in Apsley, Ontario where he and a friend ran a day-care centre.
"He had a great personality, he was very outgoing and had a good gift for the gab," remembers Arnie DUGAN. "At summer camp, he would often take the boys up to Northern Ontario. He was a giving person, and the kids always looked up to him."
Jackie DUGAN was born on April 28, 1926, in Peterborough, Ontario He died of a heart attack and stroke on January 31, 2005, in Peterborough. He was 78. He is survived by his daughter Patty and by brothers Arnie and Paul and sisters Marion and Dale.

Domenic TROIANO, Musician: 1946-2005
He was a musician's musician who mesmerized both practitioners and audiences, writes Sandra MARTIN. A self-taught guitarist yet a perfectionist, he was a master of his own style
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, June 4, 2005, Page S7
Guitarist, composer, producer, Domenic TROIANO was a musician's musician. Although he played mostly in Toronto, he was widely celebrated by fans and other musicians for his skillful guitar work and a finely honed style that morphed from rock to soul to jazz-fusion. "He lived to make music. It was his life," said Larry LEBLANC, Canadian bureau chief of Billboard magazine. As another great guitarist Randy Bachman said this week: "I'm sure the heavenly jam sessions with Lenny BREAU and Jimi Hendrix are taken to a new level, now that Dom has arrived."
Domenic TROIANO was born in Italy just after the end of the Second World War and immigrated to Canada with his parents when he was 3. They settled in Toronto where his younger brother Frank and sister Gina were born. While he was still a student at East York Collegiate Institute, he taught himself to play the guitar by studying chord books, aping the sound of such rock 'n' roll icons as Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley and by watching other guitarists play. He loved rhythm and blues and used to slide into the kid's side of the Concord Tavern on Bloor Street West on Saturday afternoons to sip soft drinks and listen to Ronnie HAWKINS and visiting rockers.
By the time he was 16 he was playing in a band, Robbie Lane and the Disciples. The first song he ever wrote, The One For Me, became the B-side on the group's first single. He got his first real break two years later when Ronnie HAWKINS hired him to replace Robbie Robertson who had decamped to play with Bob Dylan. "He was raised right. His parents had that old-school morality, do everything right," said Mr. HAWKINS. "He was a quiet type. I don't think he has ever made an enemy in the world."
Asked what appealed to him about Mr. TROIANO's playing, Mr. HAWKINS said: "He was so into that guitar and music. Nothing else mattered. That came first. And guys who are like that become the great musicians."
Mr. TROIANO stayed with Mr. HAWKINS for less than a year before leaving to develop his own sound and to form a series of evolving groups including the Rogues, The Mandala (1965-69) and Bush (1970-71). He replaced Joe Walsh as the lead guitarist when he played with The James Gang from 1972-73. He toured a lot in the United States with his bands in the 1960s and '70s and released the classic hits Opportunity in 1967 and Love-itis in 1968.
Musician Randy Bachman, formerly of the Bachman Turner Overdrive, remembers Mr. TROIANO from the 1960s. "Being from Winnipeg and having the influence of [guitarist] Lenny BREAU at the beginning of my guitar career, I was interested to hear that when Lenny moved to Toronto, his influence took root there too," Mr. Bachman said in an email message this week.
"I heard about this cool guitar player who played a Tele and gigged in an R&B band called The Mandala. I got their album and Dom's guitar work was a cool mixture of funk/R&B and Lenny BREAU stuff, all in one. I saw them play several times and was mesmerized by both the band and Domenic. Then later I saw him in Bush with the same reaction. He was totally cool and really laid down some stuff."
Years later, when Mr. Bachman made his Axe album, he invited Mr. TROIANO to play on it and he "graciously" did. "We spent a few days in Chicago jamming together," Mr. Bachman said. "He was a great person with a beautiful spirit and was a true master of his own guitar style. I later loved and envied his television sound-track work. He was a great artist and will be sadly missed by many."
After Mr. Bachman left The Guess Who, Mr. TROIANO joined the group as lead guitarist in 1974. By then, the band had scored big with hits such as These Eyes and American Woman. At the time, they were coasting on their popularity and indulging themselves both on stage and off. "He brought a discipline to the group that had been missing," said Mr. LEBLANC of Billboard magazine. "He helped them clean up their image and refine their sound."
He formed The Domenic Troiano band in 1976. It lasted for three years. Later, he said that he "started to get tired of the band thing." Although Mr. TROIANO was revered by other musicians, he was also feared because he demanded such a high performance level. "He could be hard-nosed if musicians were making mistakes or there was an equipment problem," admitted Mr. LEBLANC. Still, Mr. TROIANO "embraced" and mentored musicians who satisfied his standards, no matter how young or unknown they were.
One of them was a 13-year-old kid named Alex ZIVOJINOVIC (later Alex LIFESON of Rush) who approached him at a Canada Day concert in North York in 1967. The Mandala were playing and Alex was a huge fan. "He was so innovative. His tonality was unheard of at the time." Alex went over after and asked for an autograph. "I told him I was a guitar player and I had dreams of doing what he was doing and he was very sweet and kind to me and gave me great encouragement to keep it up and keep playing," Mr. LIFESON said in a telephone interview. "I never forgot that."
Mr. TROIANO also made a number of solo albums, including The Joke's On Me and Fret Fever, played for other musicians such as Diana Ross and Joe Cocker and produced albums for singers, including his one-time wife Shawne JACKSON. He also worked as a session musician and composer of sound tracks for films and television programs such as Night Heat, Diamonds and Hot Shots. Working in television allowed him to use technology and be much more experimental with the sound he was producing.
When he first signed on to do the music for Night Heat, he thought, "this isn't the kind of thing I do," he told an interviewer, but looking back he realized that it was "the perfect job" for him. That's because he loved working in the studio. For him, composing mood music was like "finger-painting, which is something I used to love doing at school."
By the time Mr. LIFESON met up with Mr. TROIANO again at an awards show in the 1990s, he was himself a famous musician with his band Rush. The two men laughed and reminisced after Mr. LIFESON told Mr. TROIANO of their first encounter. "He's always been a fabulous guitarist, a really good songwriter and a great arranger," said Mr. LIFESON. " He's a fabulous musician -- very, very well balanced. But he's also a bright, intelligent man with a great sense of humour. Many people loved him."
About a decade ago Mr. TROIANO was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He was in reasonable health until late last year, thanks to a holistic and homeopathic regimen, according to Mr. LIFESON, who visited him in hospital earlier this year. A tribute is being planned at the national jazz awards in Toronto next month.
Domenic TROIANO was born in Modugno, Italy, on January 17, 1946. He died of prostate cancer on May 25, 2005, in Toronto. He was 59. He is survived by his former wife Shawne Jackson, his mother, a brother and a sister.

HAWKINS, George S.
Born at Lake Egmont, Nova Scotia, July 16, 1924, died on September 24, 2005, in Halifax. son of Charles and Nellie HAWKINS, sister of Edith (William MINGO,) husband of Nancy (née MOIR, d. 1978,) father of George (Anne, d.), Robert (Margaret), Sean, Michael (Kathryn), and Nancy, grandfather of Stephanie, Amy, Christie, Nicholas, Matthew, Alexandra, and Hannah. He died of cancer that was only detected after a series of small strokes at the end of August. He will be missed by his family, all of whom were able to be with him in his last days. He was, among many other things in his life, a lawyer, businessman and political activist. He experienced success in these fields, but his greatest enthusiasm was for life itself. He had a fine appreciation of food and a highly developed sense of style, which ranged from his personal dress to his love of art, architecture (especially English and French cathedrals) and furnishings. A vibrant man, in his early years he loved sailing (a taste he acquired during his service in the Royal Canadian Navy where he served in the Volunteer Reserve as a Sub-Lieutenant during the Second World War) but in later decades preferred running (especially around Point Pleasant Park well into his seventies) and swimming (along the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean up until the end of this past summer). He had a tremendous fascination with both words and the world they are used to describe, which drew him to read a wide range of dictionaries (especially the Oxford English Dictionary), international newspapers, and non-fiction throughout his life. In later years he learned to read a foreign language and followed the media in France closely, consuming everything from the tabloid press to the serious weeklies. A resident of Halifax for over half a century, he was a strong supporter of many of its public institutions, including Neptune Theatre (of which he was a Life Director) and the Halifax Infirmary. In later years he took a particular interest in tracing the ancestry of his father's family back to Lawrencetown, and at the end of his life he chose to be buried not far from where his father had begun his life, ever close to the ocean he so enjoyed yet not far from the city that was his home. The visitation will take place at J.A. Snow Funeral Home, 2666 Windsor Street, Halifax from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday September 28. The funeral service will be held at the same venue at 11 a.m. on Thursday September 29 with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Cole Harbour Heritage Society for the preservation of the Meeting House atop of the hill overlooking the harbour. A private family interment will follow at a later date.

MINGO, J. William E., C.M., Q.C., LL.M., LL.D.
Died at Halifax on Friday, November 25, 2005. Bill was born at Halifax on November 25, 1926. He was the son of Lt. Col. Edgar W. and Lila Theresa (McMANUS) MINGO. At the time of his death, Bill was preparing for a family dinner that evening to celebrate his 79th birthday. During his remarkable life, Bill received a wealth of personal and professional recognition for his dedicated and distinguished service to his profession, to business, to education and to his community, province and country. He received his early education at Saint Thomas Aquinas and at Saint Mary's Boys School. Bill graduated from Dalhousie University with a Bachelor of Arts in 1947 and a Bachelor of Laws in 1949. He was the Gold Medallist of his graduating law class. Following completion of a Master's degree at Columbia University, he returned to Nova Scotia and was admitted to the Bar in 1950. At the time of his death, Bill was a partner in Stewart McKelvey Stirling Scales. He practised law with that firm and its predecessors during his whole career. In the early years of his practice, Bill was known as one of the ablest civil litigators in the province. Early in his career his practice changed to corporate and commercial law, for which he is best known. Quite apart from a career as an outstanding corporate lawyer, Bill was a leader within his firm. He served as managing partner for many years and was the driving force behind the merger that lead to the formation of Atlantic Canada's first regional and largest law firm. He also applied his considerable talent to promoting legal education and research and advocating on behalf of low income Nova Scotians. He was instrumental in establishing the Law Foundation of Nova Scotia, which supports legal education, research and law reform, as well as court services for women and shelters for women and children who have been the victims of domestic violence. In addition, he is nationally recognized as one of the founders of legal aid in Nova Scotia. Bill's professional career included significant contributions to local and national law associations and committees. He served as president of the Nova Scotia Barristers' Society and as a member on the Executive of the Canadian Bar Association. Bill did not restrict his activities to law and was recognized as a significant and influential force in both the local and national business communities. He helped to put Halifax on the map as one of the world's leading ports as a long time member and chair of the Halifax-Dartmouth Port Commission. He was, for many years, counsel to the Provincial Government's industrial development program which attracted many businesses to Nova Scotia, including Michelin Tire. Bill also served as a trusted business advisor to many companies in Nova Scotia including Canning Investment Corporation, Crossley Carpet Mills Limited, The Maritime Life Assurance Company, Minas Basin Pulp and Power Company Limited, Oxford Frozen Foods Limited, The Great Eastern Corporation, Maritime Tel and Tel, Maritime Steel and Foundries Limited, National Sea Products Limited and Bowater Mersey Paper Company Limited, to name a few. Peter Newman is his book, Titans, described Bill MINGO as '...the lawyer with the wonderful white mutton-chop whiskers who is the Halifax establishment's unofficial gatekeeper (while holding down directorships in nearly every important Nova Scotia company...)'. Bill's reputation as wise business counsel was not restricted to Nova Scotia but was recognized throughout the Canadian business community where his list of directorships reads like a who's who of Canadian business and includes companies such as Royal Bank of Canada, Bank of Canada, Onex Corporation, Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada and Petrofina Canada Inc., again to name but a few. Bill was an active supporter of numerous educational institutions, particularly Saint Mary's and Dalhousie Universities from which he received honorary Doctors of Laws in 1981 and 1998 respectively. He served for many years as a member of the Advisory Board of Dalhousie University Business School as well as a trustee for the Forum for Young Canadians. He served as Atlantic Chair of the Dalhousie Capital Ideas Campaign and played a critical role in raising funds for the Purdy Crawford Chair in Business Law at Dalhousie Law School. He gave untold time and energy to Dalhousie Law School and provided tremendous support through its Legal Aid Clinic and to its fundraising initiatives. In addition, he found time to chair the Saint Mary's University Capital Campaign. Bill maintained a keen interest in politics and was an active member of the National Treasury Committee and the National Executive Committee of the Liberal Party of Canada. During his exceptional career, Bill has received was particularly proud that within the last year Canada, was inducted into the Nova Scotia designated Northwood Foundation Senior of the many honours and awards but he he was appointed to the Order of Business Hall of Fame and was Year. In most recent years when his life afforded Bill more leisure time, he developed a keen interest in sports, becoming an avid skier and golfer, and also had time to savour his passion for fine wine and fine dining. In those years, Bill also savoured the ability to spend more time with Edith, his children and grandchildren. He enjoyed nothing more than their family gatherings at Grey Rocks for skiing, White Point Beach Lodge for golf and travelling the world for golf, music and dining experiences with his son, Charlie. Bill is survived by his wife of 52 years, Edith Peppard (HAWKINS) and his children: Sarah Margaret (Jean Pierre CAMUS), Halifax, James Archibald (Jill JEFFERY), Kingston, Johanna Elizabeth, Toronto, Nancy Sabina (Spencer OVERGAARD THOMSEN), Toronto, and Charles Hawkins, New York, and grandchildren Tristan and Sébastien CAMUS, Alexa and Iain MINGO, and Anne, Simon and Claire OVERGARARD THOMSEN. He is also survived by his brother, Peter (Pat), Victoria. The family will receive Friends on Wednesday, November 30, from 2: 00 p.m. until 4: 00 p.m. and from 5:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. at Snow's Funeral Home, 2666 Windsor Street, Halifax.

'Mac' led heady days at CHUM
Disk Jockey Bob McADOREY as popular as music
'Bon vivant' later a Global television fixture
By Jim BAWDEN, Television COLUMNIST
Bob McADOREY helped usher in radio's rock 'n' roll era and set the musical agenda for a generation of Toronto teens.
Few today realize the power that Disk Jockeys like McADOREY exerted over Toronto popular culture 40 years ago, when radio ruled. It was a cozy time for music -- and then CHUM entered the fray, blew the cobwebs away and ushered in the crazy days of rock broadcasting.
McADOREY, 69, died Saturday at St. Catharines' Hotel Dieu hospital after a long illness.
McADOREY grew up in Niagara Falls and attended Stamford Collegiate, also the alma mater of Titanic director James CAMERON. He was in the same graduating class as Barbara FRUM, the legendary Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television interviewer.
As a teen, McADOREY won a province-wide public speaking contest and was the popular president of his high school fraternity.
He also played ragtime piano.
"Crowds would go around him," said his older brother, Terry McADOREY.
McADOREY's radio career started in 1953 when the Niagara Falls native first signed on with CHVC near the Falls, introducing listeners to his unique style of easy-going patter.
"I looked like Buddy Holly back then," McADOREY told the Toronto Star in a 1981 interview. "I weighed about 95 pounds and we played songs like 'Que Sera Sera.' Everything was a lot softer, smoother then."
After additional stops in London, Guelph, Hamilton and Dawson Creek, McADOREY wound up at Toronto's CHUM, coaxed to climb aboard by resident star Disk Jockey Al BOLISKA.
"I'd lived with Al above a variety store in London and he kept telling me to come to CHUM. I asked for $600 a month, after all Gordie TAPP was making $100 a week, and to my surprise I got the job."
Starting in 1960, McADOREY began a stint that many people consider rock programming at its finest: brash, spontaneous and pretty wild. And the Disk Jockeys were the stars.
CHUM became the rock station to listen to and McADOREY was the man who told you if a song was going places. The guy who hung out with The Beatles and The Stones when they were in town (and introduced them from the stage) was known simply as "Mac."
For years, he hosted the all-important 4 to 7 p.m. slot. CHUM's chart of the week's top records was posted everywhere: in record stores and high school lockers. Eaton's and Simpson's would only stock those 45s that were on the CHUM list. When a new record called "The Unicorn" came in, McADOREY liked it so much he immediately put it on the air and it sold 140,000 copies in Canada in two weeks and made The Irish Rovers.
Thinking back on those heady days, McADOREY said, "We kept it all clean up here. There was no payola as in the U.S. and we deliberately helped a lot of Canadians. It was personality radio. We were promoted like crazy back then. And the pressures were unbelievable. We dictated what records were going to go. And what kids would eat, drink.
"I could have written five books about what happened at CHUM. There'd be one book if I saved my memos. The most frightening thing was the British invasion. There weren't enough cops to handle the crowds -- it was out of control."
Off the air, he was a bon vivant, said 72-year-old Terry McADOREY.
"We did a lot of drinking. He was a good friend of Ronnie HAWKINS."
In 1968, the CHUM deal fizzled. When owner Al WATERS brought in American consultants, McADOREY felt the business was becoming too heavily formatted and left.
McADOREY headed to CFGM in Richmond Hill, which was trying to invade Toronto with a country music format. As morning man, he energized the station. He moved to CFTR in 1970 and after a few years returned to CFGM.
A constant listener was Bill CUNNINGHAM, head of Global television news, and he asked McADOREY to contribute satirical bits, which eventually became a full-time job.
Sample segment: during an airline strike McADOREY headed out to Terminal 2 with bowling equipment and pins to demonstrate the building was only of use as a bowling alley. Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers saw nothing funny in this and whisked him out as the piece was being filmed.
Another time during a city campaign to get dog owners to scoop up deposits, McADOREY and a cameraman went out to do field tests, which consisted of chasing terrified dogs whose owners had failed the test.
By 1980, he was entertainment editor. In 1983, Global tried to fire him when he disagreed over assignments. Global's Three Guys at noon telecast was a big hit (the others: Mike Anscombe and John Dawe) and hundreds of daily phone calls forced management to reconsider. For a time, Global even outperformed Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Midday.
McADOREY later got his own afternoon entertainment show where he'd report from movie junkets and comment on the entertainment scene.
I last chatted with him in 2000 when he was railing against Global's retirement-at-65 rule. But he looked frail and had been off for months after a fainting attack.
McADOREY had a farm at Gormley and a place in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Despite his television success he still yearned for the golden days of radio: "I'd walk into the booth in pyjama tops and jeans and talk one-on-one to people. At least that's the way I always imagined it."
McADOREY leaves daughter Colleen, her husband Jim TATTI, a Global sports broadcaster, and four grandchildren.
He was predeceased by his wife Willa, daughter Robin and son Terry.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday at St. Patrick's Church in Niagara Falls.
